I remember when it was first released online that Jamie Foxx was going to play the famous Marvel character known as Electro and immediately, I felt deeply concerned. Don't get me wrong, Jamie Foxx is a phenomenal actor, but the idea of him playing a villain [let alone, a supervillian] felt kind of out of place in mind. Fans everywhere were wondering what he's going to look like, and are the costume designers changing his suit up? [because Jamie Foxx in Classic Electro's suit- probably wouldn't translate well on the big screen- as seen below]
[yeeeah, I'm not feeling the idea of Jamie Foxx looking too great in green & yellow spandex..]
However those worries faded slowly, as there were small little hints and newer pictures being scattered online; including one specific picture of Electro wearing a black sweater, and glowing blue? [must be the electricity flowing through him..what else could it be?] The idea of Electro in a black sweater concerned fans, and I actually noticed some comments said the whole get-up looked like something out of Star Wars; which isn't something that technically isn't something that supposed to be in the Marvel world. [to see the black sweater/glowing blue Electro- check out the picture below;]
[Is that you Emperor Palpatine?]
Thankfully, those fears were destroyed when another photograph appeared in Entertainment Weekly, and although it's not the green and yellow classic suit, it looks almost better; and actually feels like something that would make far more sense, then a big yellow 'thunderbolt star' like mask. [and ultimately, maybe the hood was put on to hide his 'electrified' face from onlookers? Below, I have included the picture from Entertainment Weekly which released the official movie costume for Electro, which will be shown in Amazing Spider-Man 2 and as I said: it's looking pretty bad-ass!
So what are your thoughts on the new Electro costume? I know it's not the classic costume one, but it should work, right? Do you like it? Or does it feel too 'mainstream'?
